Yes - there is such a file. Kill the f11-f20 lines under the
[terminal:linux] section of mc.lib. It is most likely located
under /usr/share/mc/ or /etc/mc/.

In fact maybe there are more invalid key sequences under this
section. It might be worth removing this section or at least
verifying all the sequences for the upcoming release. In any case
f11-f20 have entries in the "linux" terminfo netry so these entries
are tottaly unjustified.
